Nothing Lasts Forever (Remember this on particularly bad days...)

And then there are moments that become days that become weeks, and we wonder how we will ever get back to the goodness that is our life. We go through the motions, and find delight in small blessings that tide us over until a positive energy finally takes over, and brings us back to that coveted place we felt was missing that was really there all along. 

At one time in my life, after a particularly long "dry spell," I felt like a "reset button" had finally been pushed, and I was able to enjoy all of the blessings of my life fully again.  Sometimes we just have to hang on a little longer, have more faith, and trust in something bigger than ourselves to overcome the mental adversity that besets us. Long-term stress is rarely eternal; it just feels that way at the time.

I am most thankful that throughout my life, I have been blessed with a positive attitude. My parents shared theirs with me, and I believe that genetically, we have a lot of it in our family. The wonderful caretakers of my life always helped me find the silver lining. I may be accused of being a Pollyanna, but there have been times when I felt like that attitude got me through some awfully tough times.

Take comfort in the fact that nothing lasts forever, not the good stuff, but especially not the bad stuff either.  The rough patches we go through help us appreciate the blessings that are sure to come, if we'll just be patient.  Chin up, friends!
